Tetrarch Spots?

I've asked several questions about my grey mare. She's the first grey I've ever owned and I'm always curious as to the stages she is going through. One constant I've noticed is the appearance of large oval "spots". Some of them stay permanently no matter her color change, and she's getting more and more of them with age. I looked it up and found that briefly listed Tetrarch Spots. Anyone else know anything about this or have grey horses with these Tetrarch spots?

I know a horse with spots like that!

No clue what is causing them though, he has always had them.

How old is he? I know Holly began showing hers while she was still sorrel. They've increased and stayed the longer I have her. It is kind of cool!
